About Earl Grey Tea

Tea Type : Black Tea

Tea Forté Earl Grey is an exceptional blend of stunningly superb Organic Assam tea leaves infused with cold-pressed Italian Bergamot oil from the citrus fruit grown in Calabria, Italy. Considered to be one of the most popular teas in the West, and likely the most popular flavored tea in the world, we’ve made this an even greater grey with a sprinkling of organic cornflowers to create a rich, full-bodied cup for those who enjoy their tea with milk for the perfect classic.

The natural citrus oil is pressed from the peel of the Bergamot citrus fruit and gives Earl Grey its distinctive taste and aroma. Bergamot is a small citrus fruit with a protruding nub like a navel orange. Earl Grey tea is flavored with oil made from bergamot peel, and has a distinctive taste loved by many. Earl Grey tea is named after Charles Grey, the 2nd Earl Grey and Prime Minister of England from 1830-1834. Legend has it that he received bergamot flavored tea as a gift after one of his men had rescued the son of a Chinese mandarin from drowning.

Earl Grey is a classic English tea time treat. Traditionally it is served with twist of lemon or a bit of sugar. However, it can also be taken with a touch of milk and honey (just remember, milk and lemon together will curdle!). Earl Grey is equally well suited for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or anytime that a warming cup would satisfy.

      Morning Tea

      I’m in love with this tea! The 1st time I had it was in Las Vegas 11 years ago at the Wynn. I start my day with a cup every morning. The blend of this tea is the best of all the Earl Greys I’ve tried, and there have been many!

      Consistent goodness

      Had this tea on vacation and haven’t had any other Earl Grey that I like better. Very smooth and consistent. Great way to start my morning.

      Loose Tea Pouch

      I drink this excellent tea on a daily basis and used to buy in the canisters. I was a little wary about buying the pouch in case it didn’t keep the tea fresh. It does! I’m a convert and will only buy pouches from now on.

      My very favorite tea

      I’ve tried over a dozen Earl Grey teas and this has the best balance of flavor and quality of tea. Not too floral like some or too orange flavored. The flavor of bergamot is lovely in flavor and aroma. It’s my favorite by far.

      Lovely Earl Grey

      I shared a one-pound bag of this Earl Grey and liked it so much I bought a full pound for myself. It’s balanced and satisfying with just the right amount of bergamot for my taste.

      Black tea

      I love my Forte tea! Every morning! Even carry it with me on trips. The English b-fast is very good. The Amber sugar is the best. In a tea Forest cup with infuser makes the perfect mug!
